Not every revolution is part of an evolution.

Evolution is always revolutionary to those caught up in it. Only hindsight makes a revolution part of an ongoing evolution.

If you're not part of the revolution, you won't evolve. If you don't evolve, you're stuck in a dead end of ever-decreasing resources.

Of course, this is to confuse the individual and the tribe.

An alternate way of putting this - no individual survives (Darwinian) evolution. Thank goodness culture is Lamarckian.
